defense, of an opposition to unions and a defense of free enterprise politics. and also it's in the sun belt in the south and southwest, that we see the rise of what -- by the 1970s we'll be talk about as the religious right. the rise of evangelical involvement in the process. so national defense, he was a staunch anticommunist and played an important role in right wing anticommunist politics in the late 1960s, one of the things that led him to switch parties in 1964. he was a key figure in opposing labor unions and did so long people like barry gold water. early in his career he was a staunch advocate of unions in south carolina, back in the 30s and 40s, when the union vote was an important vote in south carolina, but he switches in the '50s and 60s and by 1970s becomes a die hard supporter of business against labor. then he also has an important roll in conservative evangelical politics. he joins the board of bob jones university in 1950. he does it to win votes, and the upcountry of south carolina. bob jones just moved to his university, and thurmond needed votes. lost the race to th
on chuck hagel. hagel, who president obama nominated as his next defense secretary is facing criticism over israel and iran. powell says he believes those concerns will be put to rest once senators meet the nominee face to face. >> he's superbly qualified based on his overall record, based on his service to the country, based on how he feels about troops and veterans, families. i think he will do a great job as secretary of defense. i think in his confirmation hearings, all of these issues that you raise, that others have raised, he'll be prepared to deal with. i read some of the responses that he has already put together. i think he will make a very, very spirited defense of his position. i think he'll be confirmed. >>> other foreign leaders are less convinced. top republicans on the senate armed services and foreign relations committees responsible for the pick for the pentagon. >> can you be for senator hagel? in some ways he was the chairman of your -- co-chair of your campaign in 2000. he would seem to be your kind of guy. a veteran. a guy who has been shot at in -- >> he's a veteran,
and be confirmed. >> senator jack reid, who is leading hagel's defense in the democratic senate caucus praised hagel's able ility the quote sp truth to power and also talked about hagel's service in vietnam. >> he's been a combat soldier. he's fought. literally walked in their boots. that i think will inspire great confidence in the military offices and enlisted men. >> but republican senator bob corker of tennessee who is not usually one of these knee jerk votes against the white house, particularly on appointments, raised a new issue about hagel on sunday. >> i think another thing, george, that's going to come up is just his overall temperment and is he suited to run a department or a big agency or a big entity like the pentagon. i think there are numbers of staffers who are coming forth now just talking about the way he has dealt with them. >> senator john mccain, the ranking member of the armed services committee, which will conduct hagel's confirmation hearing, continue to criticize his former close ally say they'll quiz him over america's view of the world. >> the surge was the worst blu
, too, andrea, over the weekend while colin powell was out talking about a defense of hagel for a cabinet post, senator corker was appearing elsewhere and giving a different type of interpretation. take a listen. >> i think another thing, george is going to come up is just his overall temperament. and is he suited to run a department or a big agency or a big entity like the pentagon. >> andrea, has senator corker's office or those around him explained what he was getting at there by the temperament phrasing? >> well, in fact, this has sort of lit up the e-mailing and texting around town here because the pro-hagel group, the people supporting him, former staff members, are asking, you know, what was he talking about because he did not get along well with some of his republican colleagues, he's known to have sort of sharp elbows but he's hardly the only senator who is known to be a little prickly at times. so people really don't understand is this a new -- was senator corker previewing a new line of attack against the hagel nomination where they're going to try to get to his t
of defense have a trust relationship. they're going to go through some difficult times in the next few years. if senator hagel isotology take on a tfk of this magnitude and the president trusts him, i think those are two really important things because it not going to be an easy four years. >> and, general, finally mali, we have a situation now where the troops that we helped are now turning -- they've become islamic rebels. they're fighting against the regime. we are being asked to play some support role perhaps with drones and other roles for the french troops. >> i think we're going to find that the whole world, but particularly africa and the middle east are changing and they're going to keep changing. i think what america has to first do is do our homework. don't be surprised by these very, very complex situations as they evolve. don't be surprised that syria is extraordinarily complex. mali is complex and going to get worse. then we've got to look at each one both individually to understand the nuances of that. also, within a wider pattern, because if you look too narrowly, the actions
. >> congress authorizes spending. they order me to spend. they tell me you need to fund our defense department, at such and such a level. you need to send out social security checks. you need to make sure that you are paying to care for our veterans. they lay all of this out for me. and because they have the spending power. and so i am required by law to go ahead and pay these bills. separately, they also have to authorize the raising of the debt ceiling in order to make sure that those bills are paid. and so what congress can't do is tell me to spend x, and then say but we're not going to give you the authority to go ahead and pay the bills. >> the economist made a laundry list of what would happen if congressional republicans refused to raise the debt limit. failure to raise the debt ceiling would force immediate spending cuts equal for 6% of gdp. not only would that threaten to send the economy back into recession, it would also deprive many of money needed to meet their own obligations, setting off a chain reaction of defaults that could incite investors to dump their holdings, driving up
the defense industry, which is not to say that there aren't plenty of democrats whose bread is not being buttered by defense contractors, but if you look down at the breakdown of sequester cuts, defense gets hit with $55 billion in cuts, but they are much more severe, and as dave wood from the huffington post has said, it's like taking a meat clever to the defense industry. the nondefense cuts, 55 billion, same amount, but social security, retirement, veterans medicaid, snap, food stamps and jobless benefits are all exempt, steve. >> i think there's a sort of story here now that's been two years in the making where at some point this is going to have to come to a head. at some point president obama is going to have to call the bluff of the republicans. there were battles over continuing resolutions to fund the government in 2011. there was a summer of 2011 with the debt ceiling. there was the super committee. they were setting up the fiscal cliff. now we've got continuing resolution in march. now we've got the sequester, march 1st. now we've got debt ceiling all over again. one of these
seats women are in. there are three seats with women as treasury secretary, defense secretary and veterans' affairs and back to that photo, the fiscal cliff conversation that where women are sitting, the first woman ever appointed, was the labor secretary. we have a good history of women in the labor position. what about treasury secretary and defense? what difference does this make? so where they sit really matters. >> one thing this issue brings up so -- the idea of these kind of disingenuous attacks from republicans on this. which has been interesting to me because i tweeted out the photo of "the times" photo. i had the good fortune of coming up in the world of lefty media that i can't recalling being in a meeting with 11 men and one woman. i don't think as a general rule that's a good idea in any case for anything other than maybe an nfl football team. like i don't understand why you would have a meeting where that was the case. i tweeted it out and it got retweeted by a bunch of conservatives like, ha, ha, you women of america, you've been punked by the administration. he
. but first, the battle is ratcheting up today over chuck hagel's nomination as defense secretary. here's former secretary of state colin powell on "meet the press." >> i think he gets confirmed. i think ultimately he's superbly qualified based on his overall record, based on his service to the country, based on how he feels about troops and veterans and families. i think he will do a great job as secretary of defense. and i think in his confirmation hearings all of these issues that you've raised, that others have raised, he'll be prepared to deal with. >> also new today, senator john mccain offering new insight into his concern about this nomination. >> what is his view of america's role in the world? whether he really believes that the surge was the worst blunder since the vietnam war. that clearly is not -- that's not correct. i mean, in fact, it's bizarre. why would he oppose calling the iranian revolutionary guard a terrorist organization? these are legitimate questions that need to be asked. i honor his service. we are friends. but i have an obligation to the men and women who ar
you in, that he owed it to you knowing you were going to come forth with that kind of defense to say maybe you shouldn't get out there so far? >> you know, i do. and i do, but at the end of the day, i'm not going to blame him. i'm going to blame myself. but, look, he's lance armstrong. what he wanted was the cover of "newsweek." he wanted a prominent -- someone prominent in the world of sports to come to his defense because as we all saw last night, lance is a clinical, classic narcissist who really only cares about himself. so he didn't care about me. he cared about getting what he could out of me, but, you know, journalists go through this all the time, and i bought it, and i'm embarrassed. >> dave, you wrote that what he's trying to do now is the equivalent of riding a bike through the eye of a needle. well, we watched half of it. we'll see the rest of it tonight perhaps. did he succeed? >> no, he didn't succeed at all, and he didn't succeed on either front, and that's the key point here is that he had to do two different things that were very different, very divergent, and he fai
on revenues. we can deal with the defense budget. but when you say whether we pay now or later but you're not talking about a delay. i went to public schools in brooklyn but now or later means delay. >> look at it this way. the amendment today, it would have cut defense something you and i have talked about before. 157 republicans voted for that. five democrats also voted for my amendment today. if the amendment had passed, the money would have gone to new york and new jersey just as quickly. again, this was not a debate about who gets the money, how much money it was. it was a debate how we're going to pay for it. make one thing clear. this is all borrowed money. this is not budgeted this year. we are going to borrow every penny we send to the northeast. i wanted to have the discussion of whether or not this was important enough to find some savings some place. give me something that we are willing to give up as a country. and if it's a national park in my state. show me something we're willing to give up as a country and share that sacrifice so these folks in the northeast get the ai
in chief trusts his secretary of defense, trusts his commanders. did you sense there was a deficit of trust between, say, you and the president early on? in afghanistan? >> if you think of any complex endeavor that you're a part of, and you're going to do it with a team of people, if you don't trust them at the outset, you're going to have to develop trust very quickly. >> and he never chose you in this case. do you think that's the issue? >> i think he was involved. i was chosen by secretary gates, and clearly approved by the president. so i wases his commander. i replaced general mckiran in june of 2010. i think, though, there are a number of things. i think people underestimate the difference between the cultures of the civilian culture and military culture. it's not an opposition. they are just different. so they use different words, different backgrounds. they have a different understanding sometimes of history. plus a new administration comes in, any new administration, doesn't matter which party. and they've got to form a team and they're trying to internally form a team and also try
not be so confused. "the constitutional right about guns is for self-defense and hunting. founders did not mean modern weapons of war." lining up the crazy is not a difficult task for the right wing these days. but this rhetoric and hysteria i think is very dangerous. there is no basis to call the president of the united states a tyrant or a dictator, and no president ever deserves to be compared to stalin or hitler. but of course it continues. it happened earlier this week. someone needs to be an adult in the room to tell them to cool it. you know? this is america. but abusing the first amendment really is not good. there is a responsibility when you're in front of a camera and you have a microphone. and if this is the way they want to use it, what do you think is going to happen? get your cell phones out. i want to know what you think. tonight's question, will republican leadership denounce this type of rhetoric? text a for yes. text b for no to 622639. you can go to our blog at ed.msnbc.com. we'll bring you the results later on in the show. i'm joined tonight by caryn finney, msnbc
phillips, dear abby, was 94 years old. >>> and manti te'o. a rare defensive player to become a heisman finalist known for his heartwarming triumph over tragedy after playing through the death of his girlfriend, or so we thought. now we learned it was all a hoax, but who was the victim here? what did notre dame know and when did the school know it about te'o. john yang is trying to unravel this mystery. john, what have you learned? >> well, it's one thing we have learned within the past hour, actually, is that we've learned that manti te'o is not here in south bend. is he in florida in bradenton, florida, at an nfl combine camp. this is where nfl prospects are being schooled in life in the nfl. ironically, including media relations. something he is going to get a real test in now. this whole story has really exploded on the internet yesterday when dead spin reported that they had looked for traces of his girlfriend, of this famous story that really define him and define the notre dame team this year in their undefeated season about his ill fated relationship with this young woman who ha
was going to win the heisman, man. >> he won every defensive award, best player on defense, second in the heisman, unheard of for a defensive player. and part of his story throughout the season was that in september of last year at the beginning of the season, his grandmother died, and then his girlfriend died within hours of each other. >> heartbreaking story. >> the reports range from an hour to a couple of days. >> you were watching and you cried. >> can i just say, my son, joey, said there's something wrong with this guy. he told me this months ago. >> joey is kind of wise. >> i was watching espn over the holidays. because alabama was on, the story. and they tell this story. and then i got a call the next morning. and it was like no, no, no! and i started tearing up. and i was like -- and then they showed him running onto the field. and i was, like, how did the guy do that the week after he found out that his grandmother and his girlfriend died, and then they went on to say he played for her the day they buried her, man. it was the most remarkable story. and i actually called j

"morning joe" starts right now. ♪ >>> only at the golden globes do the beautiful people of film rub shoulders with the rat-faced people of television. >> ben's first two movies took place in boston, but he moved this one to iran because he wanted to film somewhere that was friendlier to outsiders. "hunger games" was one of the biggest films of the year and also what i call the six weeks it took me to get into this dress. >> ang li's been nominated for best director for "the life of pi" which is what i'm going to call the six weeks after i take this dress off. >> okay, they were awesome. i thought they were perfect. >> hilarious. >> they were hilarious. good morning, everyone. welcome to "morning joe." it's monday, january 14th. with us on set, we have msnbc cont
member than from the enemy. but the department of defense and all the services have done little except a lot of lip service in terms of addressing this issue. >> is the second term a time we might see it? we have been hearing critique of the cabinet but weather the secretary of defense is a man or woman, as secretary of defense, we want that person addressing these questions. will we see a stronger motivation to address the questions of military sexual assault in the second term? >> i certainly hope so. we are having a hearing in congress this week where more than 41 young recruits, new trainees were sexually assaulted or harassed by 19 military training instructors. it wasn't because women came forward and talked about it. only one reported it. there's a fear of reporting it. if you report it, your career is over. >> is there something we can learn from sort of the culture of the military which is at this moment, managing poorly in some ways the influx of new women service members and what's going on in the u.s. house of representatives and the u.s. senate which are still dominated by
talk about the statistics of firearms used in self-defense and those statistics actually can be quite compelling. >> lars, i just want to say to you. we may disagree on this we may not. as crazy as it may be, to me so much of this is about individual behavior. and they've taken the faith and they've taken the prayers out of our school system for many, many years. so much of this, lars, is about the impact on the kids of family breakup and no one wants to talk about family breakup. ben, i think -- >> can we talk about health care? >> you know family breakup, you month the faith, you know all this stuff play as role in this. you know this. >> that's where we need school counselors. we should have one counselor for every 250 kids. in this country it's now one in 500. part of what we saw in this it will make it easier for schools to get those counselors, easier for schools to get psychologists. what we know those types of be folks help us create the sort of bonded close knit school community that makes it possible. >> baloney. come on. larry, this is crazy. larry, do you think a cool coun
from rush limbaugh. he has taken a very strange twist in his defense of gun enthusiasts. he's now claiming that they are the martin luther kings in this civil rights fight. >> if a lot of african-americans back in the '60s had guns and the legal right to use them for self-defense, do you think they would have needed selma? if john lewis had had a gun, would he have been beat upside the head on the bridge? >> i have to tell you -- >> karen, listen, this is disgusting. first of all, it's not original -- >> rush is now -- it sounds like he's trying to be a member of the black panthers. this is ridiculous. >> well, there's that irony as well. but it's not original. he's taking it from the comments from the other right wing nut job who was talking about if slaves had guns. first of all, there are plenty of shotgun owners during the civil rights era, but to reduce john lewis' service to this country and the civil rights movement and the black experience and the overall american experience in this country to him getting beat upside the head is disgusting and offensive. this is a man who
it to you knowing you were going to come forth with that kind of defense to say maybe you shouldn't get out there is far? >> you know, i do. and i do, but at the end of the day i'm not going to blame him. i'm going to blame myself. but, look, he's lance armstrong. what he wanted was the cover of "newsweek." he wanted a prominent -- someone prominent in the world of sports to come to his defense because as we all saw last night, lance is a clinical classic narcissist who really only cares about himself. so he didn't care about me. he cared about getting what he could out of me but, you know, journalists go through this all the time and i bought it, and i'm embarrassed. >> dave, you wrote that what he's trying to do now is the equivalent of riding a bike through the eye of a needle. well, we watched half of it. we'll see the res of it tonight perhaps. did he succeed? >> no, he didn't succeed at all and he didn't succeed on either front and that's the key point here is that he had to do two different things that were very different. very divergent and he failed at both. this is what he had to

they need to engage in self defense for their families or about hunters? you're saying this is the reason why everything has to stay the way it is and nothing can be negotiated. is it really working for the guys that are making the money, the manufacturers and any of the products that are threatened, in many ways, threaten their profits. this has nothing to do with regular people. even the gun owners are victimized here? >> right, if you're a gun owner, you're in no jeopardy of losing your gun or having it taken away. but if you're making munl selling high-capacity clips, then you may have a problem. the vast numbers of american people, including gun owners, are in favor of gun safety prevention. it's only these lunatics who don't want to have any limits on anything. and if you notice, al, whenever they promote a solution, armed guards in every school in america, it always circles back to them having mr guns out there. selling more guns. if there were armed guards in every school, they'd have more armed guards buying guns. >> and more bullets and the government would have to pay the money

of the economy. for example, former defense secretary robert gates has warned the rising -- he has warned of rising military costs for years. >> sharply rising health care costs are consuming an ever-larger share of this department. growing from 19 billion 234 in . >> military health care costs have gone up 300% in the past decade. 2012 was the first year since 1995 military personnel saw an increase in health care premiums. now, there are two things republicans love. the military and reducing the deficit. republican should be thrilled with the public option. how can you make a hundred billion dollar mistake? who's doing the math? will it save or won't it save? let's turn to the author of the bill, january schawowsky of illinois. >> i'm so happy that wendy is doing well. >> thank you. we appreciated your phone calls very much. congresswoman, the math? >> the estimate is it's $104 billion over 10 years. it saves the government money. in terms of the subsidies, in the exchanges, it would be one option that americans could choose the cost would be 5-7% less and it would be an anchor pulling
to actually accomplish thing, james? >> i think there are a couple things. you take what the defense gives you as a president. obviously the economy to contend with, gun control. i think immigration will be able to get worked into this. i think the administration has the to sort of wrap its arms around the combination of what happens in life around the world and what they want to try to get done. when they overlap. i do believe this administration was interested in gun control or commonsense gun safety even without a newtown massacre. when they overlap, you have to push hard and use the political will of an administration to get things done. >> if you want to call it a honeymoon period, people say as long as two years and other mrs. cynical say we're going to give him 100 day, re-evaluate and see how much capital he has. >> i would give him act six to eight months to get things in congress. after that people will be starting to think about the midterm elections. even democrats will have to go back to their districts and -- if they cast too many votes that take risk for the president, they won'
on the entitlement side as well as the defense side. and i think as the governor rightly pointed out that there is balanced pain. so there is some value to making a point there. but i think also leading up to that, the argument wants to be made and needs to be made by republicans in the congress and around the country that to the governor's point, we do have a broad-based spending probable that is intractable at this point. and that it involves, yes, you know, the debt, the nation's credit card. it involves the size and the growth of government and how big it should or should not with. and so having that conversation can be good a as long as on the outside of it, that there are some definable directions that we can take to cut the government spending, to bring this thing back and then to control. and that leads us to the point the government just made on sequester. >> congressman marshall blackburn of tennessee, she says government shutdown is an option. >> i think that there is a way to avoid default if it requires shutting down certain portions of the government. let's look at that
with the prime minister, the defense minister, opposition leaders, business leaders and, finally, with president morsi, and all of us pressed our concern, our offense at the things he's alleged to have said a number of years ago. and he responded that he is not someone who harbors hatred or ill feeling towards judism or the jewish people, but the burden is on him to further explain and put in context not just his statements, but also his actions. egypt is a vital partner for the united states, we also discussed critical strategic issues, such as security in the sinai respect for the camp david peace accords with israel and the constructive role that we hope egypt can play in the region going forward, but, obviously, his statements and our grave concerns about them were at the outset of the meeting. the responses were satisfactory enough that we then went on to talk about some of the other vital regional strategic issues. >> now, the white house and the state department have both condemned what he said, so from my own experience, they would not have condemned what the president of egypt said if h
with democrats and rand paul cooperating on some national defense issues, cutting military spending, some spying issues that we care about. you'll see paul ryan making a big show out of not cooperating with democrats but always voting yes as he did for the fiscal cliff deal and as he has in many times previous so it's going to be opportunistic between them, but they haven't sorted it out, this civil war between themselves and so it makes it very difficult for a single figure to rally under the republican mantle. >> ari, to you, to whatever matt is saying and add to whatever you would like to to the conversation here. we saw tea partiers rebel back in 2010 because they did not see the fiscal conservatism that they believe that the republican party should -- should have in its platform. might you see those centrists, those moderate republicans saying, hey, we're going to lead the republican party and start our own, if you will, subgroup because right now the republican party doesn't represent what we want it to be. >> i don't see that kind of splintering, but i would echo things like rubio and pot
